Ariana has paid tribute to her ex-boyfriend in a variety of occasions following his sudden and tragic demise back on Sept. 7, 2018, aged 26. In fact, the rapper met an untimely death due to mixed drug toxicity.
As an extreme example, two months after Miller's death she altered her tattoo dedicated to ex-fiancé Pete Davidson with one meant for the deceased rapper. To further elaborate, the Grammy-winning singer changed Davidson's father's FDNY badge number '8418' ink to the rapper's dog name Myron.
